    So I recently bought a tanami woma python hatchling and I forgot to ask how old the snake actually was. I know the age can be hard to tell from size but I have been feeding him smaller fuzzy rats once a week and he is around 60cm long and 84g

    Easiest way to tell its age is to lift up its tail and look up its date.

    And once again - another reason why I no longer drink whilst browsing this forum! ROFLMAO.


    @Codie - he's joking. "Date" is dual meaning - one for rear end, and the other for date on a calendar. He's just using a pun as a joke.

    I am interested in how you purchased it though. Did you get a license number of the seller? I'm not sure about your state but here in Vic I believe we need to have the names and contact details of the seller when we acquire herps.

    And BTW - beautiful looking snake you have there!

    I’d be a little concerned if the seller just disappears and gave you no contact details? No name?

    License?

    Exactly nine months is about 8 months.

    It's around that age.

    Oh, sorry, this thread has turned into a 'bash the new keeper' thing. I'll get up to speed...

    Codie! How dare you? I'm so angry that when I read your post and realised you'd forgotten to ask the seller for the age of the snake I had to take out my fury by verbally abusing my goldfish while vandalising my own toaster.
